Downside to Traditional Roofing
A roof with a dark material can increase in temperature by over 100 degrees which can become very dangerous to touch and will dramatically increase the temperature inside your home.
Increase in home temperature- When a roof gets too hot, it will seep through into your home. This increases the temperature of your home and will make your electricity bill higher because your air will be running lower and more frequently.
Roof deterioration- When there is constant heat on your roof, it will begin to deteriorate, which leads to higher maintenance costs.
Benefits of Cool Roofs
Less energy- with a cool roof, you use less energy because less heat is being absorbed into the roofing material. This will cause lower energy bills as well.
Improved health- This may seem crazy, but the hotter it is, the more prone to bacteria everything is. A cool roof will help keep your house cooler if you do not have an A/C in your home, which will help prevent illnesses related to heat.
